Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Sequoia blew it on a public records response. We (basically
EDA) have election databases from Riverside County that Sequoia
insisted on "redacting" first, for which we paid cold cash. They
appear instead to have just vandalized the data as valid databases
by stripping the MS-SQL header data off, assuming that would stop
"They were wrong.
"The Linux "strings" command was able to peel it apart. Nedit
was able to digest 800meg text files. What was revealed was
thousands of lines of MS-SQL source code that appears to control or
at least influence the logical flow of the election, in violation
of a bunch of clauses in the FEC voting system rulebook banning
interpreted code, machine modified code and mandating hash checks
of voting system code."
